Surprisingly, the S Tronic gearbox offered in the 1.2-litre and 1.4-litre engines, while the RS3 has been offered with the 1.6-litre TDI engines. The S3 e-Tron has a 1.8-litre TFSI engine with both 2.0-litre TDI as an option and a six-speed manual as standard.

The Sportback is predominantly a front-wheel drive but on the 1.6-litre and 2.0-litre you can opt for an all-wheel drive Quattro as an option. However, it is standard on the 1.8-litre TFSI, the S3 and the RS3.

Audi A3 petrol engines

Audi A3 petrol engines are impressive and surprisingly efficient with the manual six-speed transmission. On the low resistance tyres, 1.2-litre TFSI claims around 58 miles per gallon of fuel economy.

This engine emits around 114g/km of carbon emissions. On the S Tronic transmission, these figures improved to 59 miles per gallon and the carbon emissions will be reduced by 4g/km. Even if you like to ride the bigger wheels, with regular rubber, the engine still promises a great 56 mpg with any gearbox offered. It has a claimed carbon emission of 119g/km with the manual gearbox and 118g/km with the automatic transmission.
